Xbox Live has been a rock solid service since it first launched and has only improved with the years. PlayStation Network, on the other hand, bombed when it first launched, despite being free. People were still willing to spend the extra cash for the extra service giving the Xbox 360 a large lead in sales of most all multi-player games – but things just might change. The PlayStation Network has come a long way since it opened and the fact that Sony are also giving their users the option of buying a premium service could mean trouble for Microsoft."
